Less than 10 yards if shooting up. About 20-30 yards if they are on the ground. That is about all I can expect from my Ruger 22/45 with iron sights.

closest shot with my .22 has been about 5 yards....he was standin on his rear legs lookin at me wen i popped him in the head and made him flip over...guess the camo really works or he was just really dumb?

farthest shot was 78 yard headshot....i actually lasered him wit the yardage pro be4 i shot him...

guess my single shot bolt action i got for a 12 pack and a bushnell scope for $30 was a good deal eh? shoots 1" or less groups at 50 yards.
